Viral Sensation Karmin LIVE!
KarminBrookline-based duo Karmin have been putting their own songs online since 2010, but it wasn't until they started doing covers that they really got noticed. Less than a month ago, Karmin – a.k.a. 2008 Berklee grads Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan – uploaded a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” to YouTube. In less than four weeks, the video has gotten more than 12 million hits and Amy and Nick have racked up thousands of frequent flyer miles, appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and MTV’s “The Seven.” Amy and Nick – who also happen to be an engaged couple – join us to discuss their rapid rise, their plans for the future, and for a special live performance of a few of their most popular covers – and some of their original music as well.

Check out some of Karmin's videos:

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
